This week on The Food Seen Michael sits down with Sara Jenkins of Txikito and Alex Raij of Porchetta to discuss what it means to be an immigrant who cooks, the past and present of Italo-American cuisine, the truth or myth of our culinary ignorance in the 60s, and how cooking can be an act of love. They also recount their respective culinary histories, and what makes them want to live and work in the culinary world.

This week on Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer talks urban agriculture with Jennifer Cockrall-King, author of "Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution", a tour of urban agricultural centers in Canada, the US, Cuba and Europe. Tune in as they discuss the viability of growing food in cities and highlight some particular cities that are helping to make agriculture sustainable again in an urban setting. Learn how beekeeping and urban chickens were once commonplace and how the recent explosion of homesteading and self sustenance is a throwback to the way things once were. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

"Urban farming is one single activity that can cure a host of other urban problems."

"We haven't invented urban agriculture, we've just re-discovered it."
